Dance-Along Nutcracker, December 2020
On December 12 and 13 we joined the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band and other fabulous performers for a virtual ride aboard The Nutcracker Express! By popular demand, two additional shows have been added: December 19 at 1 p.m. and December 24 at 7 p.m. (both times PST). The livestream will not be available outside of those times. Free registration (donation requested).
As members and allies of the LGBTQ community, we recognize that committing to social justice and meaningful change requires more than sharing hashtags and statements of support. In that spirit, we share the aims ofBlack Voices Matter, a pledge of anti-racism in choral practice. We pledge specifically to the goals outlined in the sections addressed to conductors and to choral non-profit organizations, boards, and administrators. LGCSF will be pursuing these goals with the help of theGALA New Harmony Workbook and theOf/By/For All program.

For Give OUT Day 2020, we raised over $15,000 from over 130 donors, and reached third place on the national small organization leaderboard, winning us an additional $2500. We are so grateful for your contributions!

Statement in solidarity with BlackLivesMatter
May 31, 2020
This week, we mourn and condemn the senseless and cruel murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police. Tragically, George Floyd was one of many victims of white supremacy and anti-black racism in the United States. The protests throughout our nation give voice to those who have cried for years that Black Lives Matter.
We stand in peaceful solidarity with the BlackLivesMatter movement. To all black people who are angry, who are hurting, who seek change: We will be your standing stone. We will stand by you.
The Artistic Director and Board of Directors, Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco
